Polite yet meaningful with a dignified demeanour and we realised immediately that we were in the company of a true gentleman of a dram. Aromas of sweet earthy tobacco, crab samosas with passion fruit chutney, Manuka honey and late-harvest orange Muscat demanded our full attention. Full bodied on the palate with layer upon layer of deep dark fruits waiting to be discovered or like a triple chocolate caramel ombre cake. When adding a drop of water initially the balanced delicate sweetness of an ice wine followed by a chocolate orange avocado pudding and on the palate white chocolate panacotta with vinegar-infused raspberries.
